Ability Centre provides support to children, teenagers and adults with disability and their families through a range of respite options. This gives both you and your family some time out and a chance to relax.
Out of home respite
Ability Centre provides overnight respite at our accommodation located in Rivervale and Balcatta for adults and Ballajura for children and teenagers.
As well as time out, overnight stays in respite facilities offer an opportunity to discover and nurture friendships while developing independence and self-confidence. Respite facilities may also become a familiar and comfortable option for you should alternate care be needed in the event of a family commitment, appointment or emergency.
Ability Centre can also customise respite to support you and your family. Examples of this may include overnight stays, holidays, nights out with friends, support within your home, weekends away, camps and flexible funding.
In home respite
Ability Centre can also assist families to take a break by providing support in their own home. Talk to our Respite team about what option will best suit you.
